Subject: Yes, another email


Yes, we know -- another email.  But this news is urgent UNBELIEVABLE:

One day after history's largest online protest, the U.S. Government
nonchalantly responds with the middle finger. The Wall Street Journal

*The FBI shut down Thursday one of the world's most popular file-sharing
websites, MegaUpload.com, and announced the arrest of four of the people
behind it in a global crackdown against the suspected online pirates.*

*Please click here to tell your lawmakers to cut it out: No SOPA, no PIPA,
no more website

Here -- check it out: If SOPA and PIPA pass it'll just broaden the
government's power to do things like this:
make it *illegal for us* to link to sites that are seized -- like we just
did in the last sentence.)

As MegaUpload's website notes -- er... *noted*:* *

The fact is that the vast majority of mega's Internet traffic is
legitimate, and we are here to stay. If the content industry would like to
take advantage of our popularity, we are happy to enter into a dialogue.

*This is what we're up against.  Please tell President Obama and your
lawmakers to put an end to it.
